Landolt Standards and 21st Century Photometry

Arlo Landolt should be familiar to most of the AAVSO community, not only as a friend and former councillor of the AAVSO, but as one of the leading figures of astronomical photometry and photometric calibrations.  Arlo Landolt's work on standard stars has set the standard -- very literally -- for astronomical photometry for nearly half a century.

This May 19-21, Louisiana State University will be hosting the conference "Landolt Standards and 21st Century Photometry" in celebration of Arlo's work and achievements.  Several members of the AAVSO community are attending along with a number of familiar names from the world of stellar photometry.
